The ultimate fear of the unknown. What will happen once our spirits leave our bodies?
By identifying your fear, you are more than halfway to conquering it. Action is the antidote to fear. In most cases, you’ll choose wisely and your fears won’t be realized. In the cases when you choose poorly, you’ll find that “failure” isn’t as catastrophic as you imagined. Successful people learn from their failures.
By taking action on your fears, you win on both counts. You win if you make a good decision and things work out. You even win if you make a bad decision and things go poorly, because you have an opportunity to learn from your decision and the subsequent problems you faced.
The common sense point here is simple. Successful people are self-confident. Self-confident people face their fears and act. “Everyone is afraid sometime. Self-confident people face their fears and act. Look your fears in the eye and do something.”
Note that Procrastination is the physical manifestation of fear.
When you find yourself procrastinating, figure out what scares you about the situation. Is it fear of failure? Is it fear of success? Is it fear of rejection? Is it fear of being embarrassed? Is it fear of the unknown?
- Once you’ve figured out why you are afraid, do three things; admit your fear to yourself,
- embrace your fear,
- take action.
Action is the antidote to fear.
